Always disturbed by this short
6 July 2012 | by jwin1967See all my reviews

Never thought this cartoon was funny! Since the first time I ever saw this one as a kid, I thought it was out and out mean! I don't remember the character from other cartoons, so I'm not too familiar with him. I don't see anything funny about cruelty. Don't get me wrong; I love comedy, but I fail to see this one as funny. I just don't see how the ending makes for humor. I never have. I've always loved Looney Tunes, but this one I have always hated. The rest of this one isn't so bad, but the ending ruined it for me. I don't want to seem stuffy, but a cartoon that is meant to be funny, should not end on such a cruel note. It serves to give the impression that it is fine to treat others badly, and even laugh at it.
